    Right... having NOT eaten pate for the past 26 weeks.... I found this on another site....

    Pates
    It’s okay to eat:

    Meat pastes in jars
    Tinned pate; pasteurised, vacuum-packed pate; UHT treated pate
    Pasteurised pate in tubes (except liver pate)

    It’s best to avoid:

    All fresh pates (meat, fish and vegetable)
    All liver products


    So... do you think its ok... to have stuff from Tesco's or M&S thats pre-packed?? OR are u stil going to not?

    I'm a bit confused.... :think:

    Im confused aswell!!

    I would probably scrutinise the labels and look out for anything that confirmed the pate was pasteurised, vacuum-packed pate; UHT treated pate.

    I love pate too, but one quote isn't enough to make me change my mind. Any more info on where this came from? Would love to read more...

    I would still steer well clear. Liver pates have vit A which should be avoided at all times. Can't see how if pate is pasturised this would make any difference at the vit A will still be there?!

    I have eaten quite a few things that perhaps I shouldn't have during this pregnancy, but pate and mouldy cheeses are the 2 things that I won't compromise on....

    Personal choice at the end of the day I guess.

    Good point..about the Vit A.
    I suppose another few months won't make so much difference ay...
    Better to be safe than sorry.

    :) THanks for your comments ladies
